SHARK SQUADRON:  THE HISTORY OF NO 112 SQUADRON R.F.C., R.A.F. 1917-1975., Brown, Robin A.  Foreword by Squadron Leader Neville Duke.
1 Brown, Robin A. Foreword by Squadron Leader Neville Duke. SHARK SQUADRON: THE HISTORY OF NO 112 SQUADRON R.F.C., R.A.F. 1917-1975.
England Crecy 1994 0947554335 / 9780947554330 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Very Good+ 
304 pp, large 8vo (10" H). B&w photographs, maps, drawings. "(A) magnificent tribute to the men and machines of 112 recording their history from the First World War to the mid-Seventies when the Squadron was disbanded. Included in the book are appendices that list the squadron's 'victory' claims, its aircrew losses in the air, known serial numbers and aircraft destroyed or damaged as a result of enemy action. The book is complemented by over 150 photographs most of which were taken from private albums and will, no doubt, provide an invaluable source for researcher, historian and enthusiast alike. The Squadron was probably the most publicised RAF unit of the war not only because of its distinctive 'sharks mouth' markings but also for its remarkable combat record."

THE PACIFIC PRINCESSES:  AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF CANADIAN PACIFIC RAILWAY'S PRINCESS FLEET ON THE NORTHWEST COAST., Turner, Robert D.
5 Turner, Robert D. THE PACIFIC PRINCESSES: AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF CANADIAN PACIFIC RAILWAY'S PRINCESS FLEET ON THE NORTHWEST COAST.
Victoria, British Columbia Sono Nis Press 1977 0919462049 / 9780919462045 Second Printing Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good- Harlan Hiney, dust jacket art. 
252 pp, 11 1/4" H. Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, maps, reproductions, scale drawings. "In 1901 the Canadian Pacific Railway Company acquired control of the pioneering Canadian Pacific Navigation Company which for 20 years had provided the principal steamship services for the British Columbia coast and a major link between Puget Sound and Alaska. Within a few years, the CPR transformed the CPN's assortment of outdated coastal freighters, passenger steamers, and ancient paddlewheelers into a modern fleet of luxurious coastal liners - the Princess ships - offering unprecedented services to Washington State, British Columbia, and southern Alaska. The CPR's palatial intercity liners of the famed Triangle Route between Seattle, Victoria and Vancouver captured the public eye but there were other less renowned aspects of the Princess fleet's history that could not go unrecorded: the coastal freighters; the tugs; the riverboats of the lower Fraser River; the war services of the 'Princess Kathleen' and 'Princess Marguerite'; the CPR's Atlantic Princesses; the pioneering automobile ferry 'Motor Princess', and the competition of Puget Sound Navigation, Grand Trunk Pacific, Union Steam, Canadian National, Black Ball, and finally, British Columbia Ferries." Slight bump at top of spine. Dust jacket is price clipped, has general light edge wear, moderate wear on flap-folds, light rubbing and a few tiny scuffs, wrinkling and tiny tear at top of spine - archivally taped.

6 Zaslow, Morris. THE NORTHWARD EXPANSION OF CANADA, 1914-1967.
Toronto McClelland & Stewart 1988 0771090714 / 9780771090714 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
421 pp, 9 1/4" H. One of 'The Canadian Centenary Series'. B&w photographs, maps. "In the concluding volume of his study of the Canadian North since Confederation, Morris Zaslow details with encyclopedic scope the accelerating change typical of the second half of that era. In this period the frontiers of agriculture and industry swept northward from near the international border to their economic limits. In the search for oil and natural gas, these limits were also close to the country's physical limits. Assisted by new roads, extended railways, improved river transportation, and the new airplane, settlers, prospectors, and developers cleared land, sought mineral treasures, opened enterprises, and established permanent settlements in areas formerly given over to hunting and trapping by the native peoples. At the same time, the institutions of society and government familiar to southern Canada followed at a more measured pace." Minor wrinkling at top of spine, small bump at bottom corner of both boards. Dust jacket has small light stain on front panel, wrinkling at bottom of flap-folds with old tape on inside surface - very light edge wrinkling elsewhere.
